Saif, Kareena’s wedding nudges ‘Heroine’ shoot


With Kareena Kapoor’s wedding to Saif Ali Khan coinciding with the second schedule of Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’, the shoot has been pushed ahead. His first Heroine (Ash) was expecting a baby and had to go on maternity leave, temporarily halting the shoot of the film. And now Bhandarkar’s lead actress is getting married, which again alters the plans for his ambitious project.
A friend of the director revealed that the second schedule, initially slated to start from the end of February, has been pushed ahead to the middle of February. Bhandarkar’s friend explained, “The idea is to complete the second schedule by the middle of March instead of the end of April.”
According to him, Kareena was reluctant to take a break in the middle of the schedule for her wedding. “There is a reason why this decision has been taken. The plan is to complete the schedule, so that Kareena’s performance remains consistent and doesn’t lose the intensity the role demands amidst her wedding plans. This way she gets to enjoy her wedding and honeymoon, before resuming work.”
